Happy with App on Vacay 5/5
New version tracks you always 2/5
They changed this to track you always, even when app isn't open or being used. Why this is necessary, I have no idea, but say hello to additional battery drain. "Only when using app". That should be the default. Instead it isn't even an option.
Good ap 4/5
Shows everything it need to.
It's a guessing game with the 96! App not reliable for this route.
Remove stupid game app commercials- really annoying and cheapens the overall experience. Otherwise I use app everyday!
Great app 4/5
I gave this app 4 stars because it's not always accurate.
Extremely useful 5/5
Have caught many a train that I would've missed otherwise without this app.
Useful Tool For Getting Around 5/5
With a mobile phone, this app will help you take full advantage of Metro's substantial transportation network in near-real-time. If you miss a bus, you can find an alternative route that will help you make up lost time.
Pretty solid 4/5
By Dolores Day
I use the app daily and most of the time the predictions are within 3-5 minutes accuracy. I have my favorites chosen, but I do wish the interface for searching buses and metro lines were more smooth. Would be nice to get push alerts for when bus lines are down/delayed, and not just metro.
Slow to load 3/5
This app is usually accurate but also slow to load, which is frustrating when you have a short window of service at metro stops.
Very reliable 4/5
Are use it quite a lot because I use Metro every weekday. It's reliable.
Very useful apps 4/5
By Pretty dimple
its Great ride on train and buses all the accurate on time No problems 🚌!!
Works great for me 4/5
I use it daily and find the arrival times to be close to exact. I always build in a cushion of 2-3 minutes with each arrival as I've found that sometimes the buses will come early. All in all, works great for my daily commute.
My #1 Go-By Commuter App 4/5
I've tried many DMV (DC; MD; VA) commuter apps, but the DC Metro and Bus app is by far the best! It is about 95% accurate in providing realtime Metro bus and rail schedules. The only improvement for this app that I would suggest is to improve the upload time of the realtime bus schedules (it occasionally locks-up), and to test and correct the functionality of the customized alerts feature (it often does not work).
Good, but needs more services in app 3/5
This app is really good and accurate but the only problem is it doesn't have all of the bus services that serve metro. Like add fairfax connector in the app.
Good app 3/5
By Dr Longfellow
App is helpful. Data from metro is spotty. Can't blame app for that. The ads are super annoying full page timed.
Very useful app 4/5
I love the app, but I wish I didn't have to choose the bus stop when I want to find out when the next bus is coming in my area. With the old app you didn't have to do that.
App is often slow to load and bus times vary on accuracy.
Ok for a free app 3/5
Not bad for a free app, but could be better. Sometimes there's a significant lag when I open a bus line. The full page ads are also annoying. Works well enough that I stick with it, but I'm still looking for other options.
Good way to manage commute 5/5
By BA eko ile.
This app is helping me manage my commute effectively. I am able to minimize waiting time.
Good, free, and I depend on it 5/5
This app is good, free, and I use it almost every time I take metro or a bus
Bad bad bad 1/5
The reporting for the evening D6 bus toward sibley is awful. It is often non existent. And the 719 stop at 13th and G is never reported. Ever. Sometimes the bus just doesn't even show up. The time I waste at the stop makes me sick. Please fix your reporting on the D6 asap
Ok app, could be more accurate 4/5
The app is pretty spot on most of the time, but could be improved.
App is annoying 1/5
App is useless half of the time and the ads are extremely annoying.
Great but not quite perfection. 4/5
Normally the app supplies all the info I need as a day to day bus customer. However 20% of the time the realtime portion does not report bus arrival info. Don't know why. Maybe it's because the bus drivers have not turned on the GPS.
Other than that it is a great app.
Usually Helpful 4/5
The wait times for the buses are usually pretty accurate but sometimes they'll come 2 minutes sooner than expected & more often 3 - 5 minutes later . I use the app daily & find it fairly helpful.
Bad advertisement simulator 1/5
There's a weird bug where I can see bus schedules between all my favorite advertisements
As near useless as makes no difference. I would give it zero stars if that were possible 1/5
9 times out of ten, when I want to use your app, it claims WMATA is down so you cannot display anything.
1) You *could* display the schedule times but you don't even do that.
2) Usually when you say it's down the WMATA website is in fact up and working just fine. I have no idea why you can't access it; maybe you need a better network connection?
Works fine 4/5
Good app; data sometimes flaky 4/5
Metro shows you when buses and trains are arriving using realtime data. It also provides schedule data. I use it whenever I take the Metro; it is very helpful but sometimes frustrating.
Pros: very helpful for your current location or seeing where routes stop; alerts can be set as notifications — you know right away about rail and bus delays
Cons: sometimes realtime data does not get updated; difficult to determine where to get off if you are not familiar with D.C.
Lacks: interface for WMATA.com's "Trip Planner" feature
Works for Me 4/5
Works pretty well overall. I think some of the "flaws" cited by other reviewers are really the fault of Metro not the app. I've cross checked the app against Metro's own real time predictor (on Metro's web site) and they generally match up. Some buses don't have their GPS trackers on so don't get picked up. And Next Train is extremely flawed and often gives wrong or no info in the stations.
Consistently Inconsistent 1/5
By Inspectors Inc.
Bus and train times are never in sync. Roll the dice and cross your fingers with this app!
I like the app it comes in handy a lot. Only problem I have is sometimes a bus could be about to come, but real time doesn't show it on the app so you'll end up missing it. Unless you go to buseta.com that'll tell you the real time.
Okay but just needs work 3/5
By Ross Istanbul name in royal.
Love the real time tab but sometimes a bus that's coming on it's scheduled time does not show up in real time.
Also and quite frequently, it gives the "wmta offline and unable to provide data" message.
By Someone in the world 194
Often accurate but often has "outrageous" at the most inconvenient times. Happens about 2 a week
Ruined by full-screen ads 2/5
Full-screen, uncloseable ads are not the right way to monetize this app. They can pop up at the worst times, when you're in a hurry and trying to see where the trains are.
The app generally functions well, but needs to change the way it does ads.
Solid app 5/5
This my go-to app for D.C. buses and the metro. Definitely a time saver.
Solid app 4/5
By Commissar Jane
It has some timing issues(Buses will display as being one minute away for as many as five minutes) but that's preferable to the alternative. The full screen ads are annoying, but easily x'd out of.
Pretty accurate! Use location for nearby stops 3/5
I use this app to plan my trips almost everyday. I love the real time arrival updates.
Review for metro app 4/5
This is a very good app. I've recommended it to others and they too love it. When it snows, rain or is very cold it does not work very well, which is understandable because the phone does not work so well at these times either. Overall I am happy with it.
Very helpful 5/5
Love the app.
Really useful for bus routes and times 4/5
Makes it easy to find some bus stops and schedule info. Can save favorite stops.
Would be perfect if it also covered the Ride-On busses that are also in Montgomery County and also use Metro fare smart cards.
Best app I've found 4/5
For the DC metro area this is the best real time estimator I've found. It can be spotty at high traffic stops (read, the ones most needed) during rush hour but I've yet to find a better app.
Reliable & Easy to use 5/5
I have been using this app for a few years. I use it for metro and bus info. I find it very reliable and easy to use. I have favorite stops/destinations flagged so I can go right to that list to get current arrival time of the metro or bus.
Used to be reliable 2/5
I've depended on this app to plan my morning commute. Usually it's pretty reliable, but I've noticed a huge slip recently. It's completely off for S2 at stop at 16th and Sheppard st.
What a wonderful App for residents of the surrounding area and visitors. This app is my go to when traveling public. Arrival time adjusts when train or bus schedule is changes. Would love them to include Montgomery County transportation Ride On schedule it would be a great all in one.
All in one metro train-bus app 5/5
I use it everyday. Great app
Great App 5/5
I love this app! I use it everyday to catch the bus or metro. My only complaint is that once in a while the time to the next bus is inaccurate because they miss a bus.
Good App 5/5
I find this app to be helpful to know when the bus is arriving
Great for bus & metro riders 5/5
By Rin Okumura19
Im recommending this app to friends and to my family would love to see updates thank you.
This App Is The Most Accurate App Of All Time. I Never Miss My Bus
